Tyrion Is a Secret Targaryen
The Theory/Prediction: This one is more of a book theory that fans have brought into the show, but it’s a pretty bonkers one: As explained by Business Insider and The Ringer, Jon Snow isn’t the only secret Targaryen. Theories infer that Tyrion is actually the son of the Mad King Aerys Targaryen. In George R.R. Martin’s books, it’s mentioned how the Mad King lusted after Tyrion’s mother multiple times, potentially implying that he slept with her at least once. While it’s not confirmed it ever happened, Martin also describes how Tyrion has different-colored eyes, which another Targaryen bastard, Shiera Seastar, also had. The show hasn’t pointed much to this theory and with just one episode left it’s very unlikely that it will get shoehorned in.
The Evidence: When Tyrion goes to the dungeons of Meereen, he interacts with Dany’s dragons. He pets them without any issue, and even goes as far as to unchain them.
